Podeljena prva Modra vesla v Sloveniji - First Blue paddle (EPP Level 3) awarded

V soboto, 22.3., smo na Obali ocenjevali in podelili prva Modra vesla v morskem kajaku v Sloveniji. Obenem so to tudi prva Modra vesla v Sloveniji, ne glede na disciplino. Tri kandidate je skrutiniralo devet ocenjevalcev in opazovalcev in ker je bil to prvi tovrstni dogodek pri nas, smo bili na preizkušnji tudi ocenjevalci. Ocenjevanje smo vsi dobro prestali :)
On Saturday the 22nd of March we assessed the first ever level 3 awards in Slovenia. Three candidates were scrutinised by 9 assessors/observers and all 12 were happy at the end.

 Brez jopiča ostaneš doma - Without PFD you're staying at home 

 Vreme je bilo dovolj dobro in dovolj slabo za tak rang preverjanja, kandidati pa so pokazali veliko znanja in prizadevnosti. Veter je pihal z močjo do 3Bf, temperatura vode je bila dobrih 12'C, skozi nizko oblačnost je deloma deževalo, deloma pa tudi sijalo sonce - takorekoč idealno vreme.
The weather was good/bad enough with up to force 3 wind, 12'C water temperature and occasional sun but mostly rain. Paddlers delight.

Po dobrem veslanju, dobra pavza - Good paddling calls for good break

Naslednje preverjanje morskega kajaka bo najkasneje oktobra, ko bo pri nas mednarodno primerjalno ocenjevanje.
Next assessment in sea kayak will be in October on international benchmark if not sooner.

Happy 2014 BTS

Zakulisje - pod pogojem, da jezero ni zamrznjeno, se lahko s pomočniki odpravite do Vodnega mesta, kjer vam nastavijo tistih pet bliskavic in se potem fotografirate, medtem ko simulirate pripravo toplega obroka. Eden izmed pomočnikov za vami z lučjo izpiše 'happy 2014', vsi zaploskamo, zabava se nadaljuje v Luciferju.
Behind the scenes - if the lake is not frozen you can head out to the Floating city with your team of assistants that set up your lights. Then you take a photo of yourself while acting as if you would be cooking a meal. One of the assistants writes 'happy 2014' with a light in the background, applause follows and you're ready for after-party in Lucifer caffe.

Če pa ste proračun za pripomočke in pomočnike porabili za kajakaško opremo, se lahko še vedno odpravite sami (oblečeni temperaturi in okolju primerno!!!) in fotografijo posnamete v slojih, ki jih kasneje zlepite. Kasneje lahko sloj z napisom tudi odstranite in fotografijo uporabite kadarkoli, ne samo enkrat v zgodovini (ali pa napišete 'happy '14' in jo uporabite vsakih 100 let).
In case you blew your  budget for assistants on kayaking gear you can still paddle out alone (make sure you wear proper cold water gear!!!). Once you light each dome and nail the sign you can join the separate photos as layers. Even better, you can choose not to add the layer with the sign, that way you get a photo that is not usable only once in history (or you could write 'happy '14' and use it every 100 years).

Oblecite in fotografirajte se v slojih - Wearing and taking layers


Na poti zaradi več deset baterij raje ne eskimotirajte, čeprav bi lahko krivdo zvalili na TEŠ.
Because of several batteries in your kayak you shouldn't be rolling - just in case. Although you could blame it on the nearby power plant.

I wanted a gift not GIF :(
